intrachromosomal distribution of telomeric repeats in eumops glaucinus and euntops perotis (molossidae, chiroptera).the location of chromosomal telomeric repeats (ttaggg)n was investigated in two species of the molossidae family, eumops glaucinus and eumops perotis. the diploid chromosome number (2n) is 40 in e. glaucinus and 48 in e. perotis and the fundamental numbers (fn) are 64 and 58, respectively. it has been suggested that the e. glaucinus karyotype has evolved from the e. perotis karyotype through robertsonian fusion events. in the present study, the telomeric sequences were detected at the termini of ...200011117352
karyotypic patterns of seven species of molossid bats (molossidae, chiroptera)g- and c-banding patterns of seven species of the bat family molossidae, eumops glaucinus, e. perotis, molossops abrasus, m. temminckii, molossus ater, m. molossus, and nyctinomops laticaudatus, were identified. comparisons among the karyotypes of these species showed extensive homologies between e. perotis, m. ater, m. molossus, m. abrasus, and n. laticaudatus, demonstrating inter- and intrageneric conservatism, and a lesser degree of homologies in m. temminckii and e. glaucinus, reflecting int ...19968565627
isolation of histoplasma capsulatum from bats in the urban area of são paulo state, brazil.summarythe presence of bats in caves, attics, ceilings, and roofs is important epidemiologically as they can increase the chance of human acquisition of pathogens, including histoplasma capsulatum. brazilian urban areas contain many species of bats, especially insectivorous bats, that are attracted by a wide range of readily available food and shelter. from august 2003 to december 2008, we analysed 2427 bats in the sã£o paulo state region. homogenates of the livers and spleens of the bats were p ...201021205438
echolocation in the large molossid bats eumops glaucinus and nyctinomops macrotis.eumops glaucinus and nyctinomops macrotis, the largest molossid bats in cuba, were investigated. both species of bats share the same guild in the island and are similar in size, which allow the prediction of overlapping echolocation inventories following both the "vocal plasticity hypothesis" and the "scaling hypothesis." in addition, large body size predicts the emission of low frequency calls in the human audible range. calls recorded during hunting show that the bats' echolocation repertoires ...200818275247
genetic variability in species of bats revealed by rapd analysis.random amplified polymorphic dna molecular marker was utilized as a means of analyzing genetic variability in seven bat species: molossus molossus, m. rufus, eumops glaucinus, e. perotis, myotis nigricans, eptesicus furinalis, and artibeus planirostris. the determination of genetic diversity was based on 741 bands produced by a 20-random primer set. only eight bands were considered monomorphic to one species. the greatest number of bands and the most polymorphic condition were exhibited by m. mo ...200617183488
